Lissa grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She attended Purdue University and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science. While attending Purdue, she was a coxswain for the Purdue Crew team. After graduating from Purdue, she attended University of Oregon for law school. Once in law school, Lissa searched for ways to get into the courtroom as soon as possible. She knew since long before law school that she wanted to be in front of juries and judges in the courtroom.

Lissa found her way into the courtroom through clinics and externships at the University of Oregon. She felt comfortable from the start in court, and decided that’s where she wanted to be as an attorney.

Before joining Arnold Law in 2012, Lissa spent over three years as an assistant district attorney in Lane County. As an assistant district attorney, Lissa spent virtually every day in the courtroom prosecuting domestic violence cases, DUIIs, and felony-level drug, property, vehicular, and violent crimes. Lissa has also litigated countless bench trials and contested hearings. During her time as a prosecutor, Lissa learned the value of a case through seeing her countless filing decisions play out in court.

Since joining Arnold Law, Lissa has put her courtroom experience to work and continues to spend her days in the courtroom on restraining order and stalking order cases, DUIIs, and defending her clients in major crimes and felony criminal cases.

Lissa’s trial experience gives her the tools necessary to assess the facts in the case and understand how to craft a litigation plan that maximizes results for her clients. She understands that being prepared for trial means hours of hard work, and that an attorney has to prepare for trial from the initial client meeting until the trial date. Lissa’s straight-forward advice to clients about how their case will play out in court allows them to have confidence in her ability to take the case to trial while trusting her advice on potential settlement negotiations.

Lissa regularly tries cases to juries around Oregon. She co-counseled a DUI/Manslaughter case that resulted in a Not Guilty verdict on the Manslaughter charge after the jury deliberated for only 45 minutes. She also obtained two Not Guilty verdicts in Fall 2017 against the Lane County District Attorney’s Office, where she used to practice as an assistant district attorney. One of Lissa’s clients was involved in an incident where he defended himself with a firearm, and the jury found him Not Guilty after 26 minutes of deliberation. Another one of her clients was wrongly accused of DUII and Reckless Driving, and Lissa successfully defended him, obtaining an acquittal on both charges. Lissa frequently defends those falsely accused of crimes and keeps District Attorney’s offices from filing charges pre-indictment. She is committed to tenacious and relentless advocacy for her clients, from before charges are even filed through a jury trial.
